    pete, on the rim close up shot the rims almost look like carbon fiber. Please tell me I'm wrong. What do you guys think... $10,000 ? for the whole shebang

    The pics from Interbike are the old 82mm wide aluminum sand rims, powder coated black. They are taped and sealed around the edge of the holes with a silicon or rubber sealant. Might give the appearance of carbon? In the pics from Anchorage the bike has Large Marges also powder coated and a sand rim on the trailer. All the wheels are interchangeable.
    Yep, I bet around $10000 is about right.
    The down tube and fork legs both hold fuel and have little vales you can use a shock pump to pressurize.
    FYI, the Pugs has more clearance. The Moots barely fitís the sand rim and Endo Morph in the rear. Just thought Iíd throw that in to make Pugsley owners feel better.

    I think it's funny that, in the pics, they mention something about an 'assault on Antarctica...'. Funny because the farthest south I've ever been is Florida...

    Carbon rims? I wish. I mentioned it to Zipp at Interbike and they agreed that it'd be a good idea. Then they asked who was gonna pay for it... DOH!

    The Pugs does have more clearance out back. But how y'all can live with yourselves when riding that purple monstrosity is just beyond me. I can see Adam liking it, but that's not surprising if you've ever seen his musical collection. Or his wardrobe packed with superhero UnderRoos...

    Actually the Snoots frame is back at Moots right now having the rear tire clearance addressed. To their credit, when they built it I gave them a Large Marge with an Endo on it as their 'template'. Then shortly after it was built I scored 4 Sand rims, and immediately laced one up and stuck it in there. Tight. Should be solved before Christmas, which is good because it's snowing outside right now...

    $10k? Not even half that. But I'll sell it for $10k. Who needs one?!

    The frame, fork, and rims were expensive but the rest is pretty pedestrian stuff that I had laying around the shop. Anyone need any 26" spokes? Not sure what to do with those anymore.

    Heh heh heh...

    More details on the Snoots here.

    Cheers,

    Hey!!!

    Hey now, that's some pretty wild claims there MC. (Sez I as I type this in my skin tigh plaid pajamas next to a wall of frankenstien's banjos) I mean did Zipp really think it was a "good idea"???

    Its snowing here too, so I guess I gotta go down to the garage and fiddle with my purple monstrosity.

    Did he just write that for all the world to see?

    And who is he kidding? If it's snowing, it's cold out. Cold = shrinkage.
